Firehouse Mural | The Giving Challenge Results

Firehouse Dog

This year our Giving Challenge Project was our Firehouse Mural. Punta Gorda Station #1 hosts 500-800 children a year for safety and fire training. What a perfect place for a mural that captures the history of our Fire Department. We raised $18,000 during the Challenge getting us halfway to our goal of $36,000 for this very large mural. Thank you so much for your support! If you missed the Challenge and still want to Donate, please go to our DONATE page.
